Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 launched: world's first 4K 240Hz gaming monitor
Samsung teased, and then announced its Odyssey Neo G8 gaming monitor earlier this year... but now the new gaming monitor has officially launched worldwide. Check it out:
The new Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 gaming monitor has a 32-inch curved VA panel, with a native 4K resolution and super-intense 240Hz refresh rate. Yep, 4K 240Hz insanity that is also driven by Quantum Mini-LED technology, with Quantum HDR 2000 and 2000-nit peak brightness. There's an ultra-low 1ms response time as well.
Samsung says that its new 32-inch Odyssey Neo G8 gaming monitor is the "world's first and fastest gaming monitor" that rocks a 1000R curved VA panel featuring Quantum Matrix Technology. The buzzwords, they get me everytime. Whsh: QUANTUM MATRIX TECHNOLOGY. Marketing jokes aside: this is a serious god damn monitor, with 4K @ 240Hz you're going to need a next-gen GPU to run games at 4K 240FPS. Maybe even a generation ahead of that.

Elon Musk asks what resolution is life in: 8K he says
Elon Musk has asked one of the most important questions in the world: what is the resolution of real life?
In a new tweet, the world's richest man -- and SpaceX + Tesla CEO -- Elon Musk, has asked "what resolution is life in, 8K?" As someone who personally owns an 8K monitor and runs 7680 x 4320 all the time, I would say it's superior to 8K. The resolution of real-life would have to be in excess of 16K or even 32K at beyond 120FPS.
We wouldn't even measure "FPS" as time can feel fast, or slow depending on what you're doing -- so 120FPS would be a hard indicator. I'd love to know what Elon thinks... if real-life is being rendered in 8K resolution -- on this simulation of the "real-world" at least -- then surely, it's being pumped to us at beyond 120FPS.

LG UltraGear monitors: first VESA AdaptiveSync Display certification
LG launched multiple new UltraGear gaming monitors at Computex 2022 this week, but the two smaller 27-inch gaming monitors are the very first with VESA AdaptiveSync Display certification.
The new LG UltraGear 27GP950 and 27GP850 both feature a 27-inch Nano IPS-based panel, with LG announcing the two monitors "fulfilled the mandated scores across VESA's Adaptive-Sync Display CTS, including numerous fundamental measures such as refresh rate, screen flicker, and response time".
How do the new VESA AdaptiveSync Display certification logos help you? Well, the new logo will help customers work out and compare the variable rate refresh (VRR) performance of the gaming display, before they purchase it. When you're buying a premium gaming monitor, the new logo will help you absolutely know that, I guess.

LG UltraGear 48GQ900: 48-inch OLED gaming monitor, 4K up to 138Hz
LG UltraGear has just announced its first OLED gaming monitor, introducing the new LG UltraGear 48Q900.

LG is offering beautiful color reproduction and contrast thanks to its OLED panel technology, as well as LG's anti-glare low reflection (AGLR) coating.
AGLR reduces visual distractions so that users (gamers) can focus their attention on the gameplay, something that will help you in brighter environments (whether they're lights inside of your house, and room or whether it's sunlight through the window).

NVIDIA announces 12 more games with DLSS, F1 22 and Hitman 3 included
NVIDIA didn't have a big Computex 2022 keynote, but it did cram in some cool things -- the best thing for me, the new 500Hz gaming monitor -- but also 12 new games with DLSS support.
The company announced that NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology is coming to two big games: F1 22 and Hitman 3. Hitman 3 gets its ray tracing update today, as well as DLSS which will help out with performance across the board on a GeForce RTX GPU.
Hitman 3 includes a big update that packs NVIDIA DLSS, ray-traced opaque reflections, ray-traced shadows, and more content for gamers to enjoy. F1 22 isn't quite here yet, launching on July 1 with both NVIDIA DLSS as well as ray-traced opaque reflections, ray-traced transparent reflections, ray-traced ambient occlusion, and ray-traced shadows.
